Here is the Top 25 Collector Cars For 2019. The summer collector car auction season is in full swing and it’s not just about multi-million collector cars.
Auctions like Mecum, Barrett-Jackson and others do most of their volume in the mid-priced range, but those buyers are still looking for a return on their investment.
So what are the hottest cars that people are talking about in 2019? According to the Hagerty Vehicle Rating, they’re talking about trucks.
Number one on the list, which tracks demand in vehicles based on sales prices and insurance policies quoted and initiated by Hagerty, is the original 1966-1977 Ford Bronco, which has been gaining momentum thanks in part to anticipation about its long-awaited successor that’s set to go on sale in 2020. Prices for premier models of the off-roader have doubled in just the past three years.
The second generation 1978-1979 Bronco is tied for second place with the 1973-1991 Chevrolet C/K Blazer, its top rival. Hagerty valuation editor Andrew Newton says this is due to the first gen Fords are starting to get too expensive.
The 1963-1983 Jeep Grand Wagoneer – another SUV about to get a reboot – and 1967-1972 Chevrolet C/K pickup are in a five-way tie for fourth with some of the first sports cars on the list, the 1977-1981 Toyota Celica, 1990-1996 Nissan 300ZX, 1993-2002 Mazda RX7 and 1999-2002 BMW M Coupe, which is known as the “Clown Shoe” and has been selling on average for $45,300. That’s up more than $10,000 at this moment in 2019.
The top 10 is actually 12, with a three-way tie that includes the 1973-1987 Chevrolet C/K pickup, 1981-1986 Jeep CJ-Scrambler pickup for the last 3 spots — which gets a boost by the arrival of the new Jeep Gladiator – and the original 1990-1988 Mazda MX-5 Miata.Auto News, Blog
